IT'S LIKE OUR LIMBS ARE FALLING OFF
THERE GOES A TEARDROP/HERE COMES DANDRUFF
Hairstyles change.Hair comes and goes.Those artists who
best represent change to us/seem to be leaving'@an accelerated pace.
Is it age?Or tribal parallel passages-wherein and whereby
our influences are evaporating like waterholes in a prosaic desert.
You see-when what we heard when young is muzak/karaoke/or cover bands
because the ORIGINAL TONES are old,dead or damaged-where will we go/
Adolescence defines us with limits of age.We stop with the familiar.
Our reference points will not change.We refer back to RETRO to make sense of our lives
Then the tent poles are pulled up-and the circus leaves town.We want to go with them
but they are in another land,and only one-way passes are ever granted(with few exceptions..
Nostalgia is rust on bright memories.SHINE beyond limits of time and energies!
Founding member of Thunderclap Newman, the band that had a No 1 hit with Something in the Air in 1969
